Even in your tank USB Microscope

So we have all seen the white worms at some point in out tank. I bought a veho 400x usb microscope so we could all see the smaller stuff growing in out tanks.
I will add a bunch of pictures and video to my You Tube site in a few weeks I am just waiting for my video camera to arrive still.I will post the stuff here for you all too see aswell.
Do you know the name of this?
they grow in all fresh water aquariums but Have you seen them in salt water tanks?
You should see baby snails so small and colorless and stringy white poop ect I will add later

Baby snails hatching form eggs

I was luck to catch them hatching you can just see the left over egg shell he is slipping out of.In the first photo you can just make out the little white egg like things on the green glass from the brown snails in the same picture.

Brine Shrimp eggs and Activated Carbon

First two photos are of brine shrimp.No wonder brine shrimp need water and salt they look like flat basket balls.
The second two Filter carbon. I have read that it removes contaminates by filling the holes in the carbon little pockets small enough to trap the medicine pieces that float in the water.Please correct me if I am wrong.

Any comments I have put this together so the newbie can see things and what to expect in their tank?
Leave a rating out of ten and please tell what you think I should do to improve it for a newbie to Aquariums.
